We really appreciate the high quality of work, flexibility and knowledge J&M provides as our web support/communications provider. Our chapter feels that we receive a tremendous value for our money.

“I have been associated with J&M Business Solutions since 2006. I was at that time President of the National Drilling Association (NDA). In the past eight years I have been President, Vice president, and currently Treasurer of the NDA. I was instrumental in hiring them for our association. They have a hard working team and have helped the NDA immeasurably over the past eight years. Their duties include day to day management, sales of our promo and safety items, arranging meetings and planning our yearly convention.
They have worked well with all of our subsequent board Presidents and members. I wouldn’t hesitate to hire them again, and would definitely recommend J&M Business Solutions to other associations as a management company.”

“Northern Ohio Charitable Gift Planners began a search for a new association management firm in 2013. We interviewed several firms however J & M by far was the clear choice for NOCGP. As President of the Northern Ohio Charitable Gift Planners I personally interfaced several times with both Jackie and Sheri to discuss strategic planning for our association as well as review budgetary issues.
The decision to move to J & M has not only saved NOCGP several thousand dollars through venue changes, but it has also helped increase membership and improved Board meeting productivity.”
Andrea M. Shea / Past President / Northern Ohio Charitable Gift Planners
“I wish to express my sincere appreciation for the assistance you and your staff have provided to the Greater Cincinnati Association of Health Underwriters over the past 3 years. J & M helped us move into the 2l1st century by creating an online registration process and shopping cart for our monthly membership meetings. As part of that same program, we are now able to send out meeting notices electronically on a scheduled basis. The majority of our members now register and pay their meeting fee on line. All of this has saved us time and effort on the part of the volunteer leaders of our association.
In addition, everyone on your staff is very helpful and goes out of their way to help us accomplish our goals. We couldn’t have accomplished everything that we have without the technology and people resources of J & M.”
David R. Kross / President / Greater Cincinnati Association of Health Underwriters
“The Association of Fundraising Professionals Greater Cleveland Chapter has partnered with J & M Business Solutions, LLC for more than 5 years. During that period of time J & M has provided outstanding support services to over 60 program events that were sponsored by our Chapter. Their support included: managing the advance registration process, coordinating all logistics with the host facilities, fielding questions from our members and others about the event, as well as glitch free check-in and other day-of support for all of our events.
J & M also provides all of these same services for our annual National Philanthropy Day event which draws over 500 individuals each year. They work with our chapter members to support: recruiting of sponsors, award nominations, workshop registrations, vendor table assignments, logistics for our keynote speakers and other presenters and they manage the entire on-site check-in process on the day of the event.
Knowing we have J & M’s support to manage all of the behind-the-scenes details for our events, frees us to focus on the content delivery and member relationships that are so critical to the success of any event.”
Tim McCormick / Past President / Association of Fundraising Professionals Greater Cleveland Chapter
“I would like to take the time to thank J&M for the outstanding work building and executing our company website. They were able to conceptualize my ideas and put them into a format that accurately represents our firm’s goals and business mantra. The service was professional, efficient, and cost effective to say the least. I give them an A+!”
Keith Gaspari / President & CEO / Chatfield Drilling, Inc.
“Northwest Ohio Association of Health Underwriters has been very pleased with the services we have received from J&M. They reorganized and designed our website and gave us suggestions on how to save money on our vendor expenses. They help keep us organized, our P&P’s up to date and made our transition between administrators virtually painless. If you are looking for consistency in your board transitions you are looking for the services of J& M.”
Kelly Ryan Belote / Past President / Northwest Ohio Association of Health Underwriters
“We contracted with J & M to help our boating association re-launch after the loss of our main secretary/treasurer. The association had gone dormant for several years and was on the brink of completely disappearing. We were in need of a management group that would become our “home base” as the organization has membership across the United States and Canada. Given the unique mission of the Matthews Boat Owners, we also needed a management group that was flexible enough to support our needs and would provide the service we needed in a cost-effective manner.
J & M has met and surpassed our hopes and expectations. We have worked extensively with Jackie Symons, Sheri Glaze, and Becky McWilliam in our transition and they have been extremely attentive, responsive, thoughtful, and creative in helping us re-launch successfully. They revamped our membership materials, published our first membership LOG after many years, updated our website, and have provided mailings (both digitally and hard copy) to the membership. Additionally they support our bookkeeping, help arrange trustee phone conference meetings, minute our meetings and work closely with me to develop future agendas.
As Executive Director, this is a volunteer job for me and I have a very full time job. I am grateful to have the support of this excellent organization and I do not believe this association would have been able to move forward as efficiently and effectively without them.”
